Gov. Perry calls political cartoon on West explosion "disgusting"

(KYTX) - Governor Rick Perry says he's disgusted by a political cartoon making light of the West explosion.

The cartoon in the Sacramento Bee in California depicts Governor Perry standing in front of a podium saying "business is booming," and the next panel shows an explosion meant to represent the fertilizer plant blast in West.

The Austin American Statesman says the author of the cartoon, Jack Ohman, claims he was trying to criticize Perry's marketing of the state's loose regulations.

Governor Perry has been trying to woo California businesses to Texas.

But Ohman says he's not trying to be tasteless.

Governor Perry is demanding an apology for the people of West.
